  1. Reminders for the faculty on giving and submission of grades.

a) A student is automatically dropped from the rolls for non-satisfaction of prerequisites. In such a case, write “DRP” under Final Grade and “Forced-drp. due to non-satisfaction of prerequisites” under Remarks opposite the student’s name.

b) If a student’s application for leave of absence was approved on or before May 04, 2017, opposite the student’s name in the gradesheet write “DRP” under Final Grade and “LOA” under Remarks. 

However, if the student withdrew after three-fourths of the total number of hours prescribed for the course has already elapsed, the student may be given a grade of “5” if the class standing up to the time of the withdrawal was below “3”.  If you do not want to give a grade of “5”, write “DRP” under Final Grade and “LOA” under Remarks opposite the     name of the student in the gradesheet. “LOA” is not a grade  and therefore, should appear only under Remarks.

c) The grade of “Inc.” is given to a student whose class standing throughout the semester is PASSING but is not able to take the final examination or to complete other requirements for the course due to illness or other valid reasons.  The reason for a grade of “Inc.” should be indicated under Remarks.

d) Write under the column Remarks the reason for the grade of “5.0” of a student in a course, whether (a) poor scholastic performance, (b) excessive absences, or (c) unauthorized dropping/stopped attending classes.

e) For students who incurred absences, the rules on attendance quoted below shall apply:

When the total number of hours lost by absence of a student reaches 20% of the class hours, the student shall be dropped from the subject without the need of a dropping slip.

If the majority of the absences are excused, the student shall not be given a grade of “5” upon being dropped.  In the grade sheet opposite the student’s name, write “DRP” under the column for Final Grade and “Excessive excused absences” under Remarks.

If majority of the absences are not excused, the student shall be given a grade of “5” upon being dropped.  In the grade sheet opposite the student’s name, write “5” under the column for Final Grade and “Excessive unexcused absences” under Remarks.

 

The table gives some examples for determining what is 20% of the class hours.

                         (Regular Semester)                 Total No.                      20% of

                        No. of Meetings/ of Class          Class                           Days

                                    Week                           Days                          

                                       3                                  48                              9.6

                                       2                                   32                              6.4

                                       1                                   16                              3.2

           

However, a faculty member may prescribe a longer attendance requirement to meet their special needs. In such a case, the students must be properly informed.

Time lost by late enrollment shall be considered as time lost by absence.

BEFORE DROPPING A STUDENT DUE TO EXCESSIVE ABSENCES, THE FACULTY MEMBER SHOULD INQUIRE AT THE RESPECTIVE OFFICE OF THE COLLEGE SECRETARY IF THE STUDENT HAS DROPPED THE COURSE OR OBTAINED A LEAVE OF ABSENCE.

a) Seminars should be graded “S” (Satisfactory) or “U” (Unsatisfactory). Likewise, thesis in progress should be graded “S” or “U” and not “IP” (In Progress).

b) Special students do not earn credit but may be given a grade of “S” or “U”.

c) Completion/removal grades are to be submitted using the Report of Completion/Removal Grades form.  Such grades should not be included in the On-line Grade Sheet which lists the students currently enrolled in the course.

If you have questions on the official enrollment of students in your class, please check with your College Secretary or the undersigned.

  1. i)   No student is allowed to take any removal examination unless a Removal Permit is issued by the respective College Secretary and presented to the Professor/Instructor concerned.

      The one-year academic period allowed for the removal of grades of “4” and “Inc” extends to the regular semestral removal period immediately following the one-year period.

      Effective first semester 2015-2016, the grade of “4” is removed by passing a removal examination or by reenrollment in the course.

      If not removed within the prescribed period (one year), the grade of “4” automatically becomes “5”.  The grade will be changed by the University Registrar upon prior confirmation with the concerned teacher and adviser or in their absence, the department chair or institute director.

  1.  For second semester 2016-2017, faculty members must log on to http://sais.up.edu.ph using their up.edu.ph account to gain access to the gradesheets for the courses they handled.

        Print outs of the online submitted gradesheets must be signed by the faculty in charge and the department chair prior to submission of one copy each to the department, Office of the College Secretary and the Office of the University Registrar.
